Creeped out by “The Blob”? Watch it Free at Crackle.com

Posted on October 16, 2010 by Monica Valentinelli

Crackle.comLast week, I talked about why 13 GHOSTS is a classic horror film. For this week’s article, I decided to talk about a different kind of monster — THE BLOB.

Released in 1988, The Blob remake is the kind of horror movie that makes you groan, laugh and scream. Creepy violins and cheerful images of a small town set the mood. The first people you meet? Teenagers! The main characters are all the teenage icons you’d see in a lot of ’80s films. The long-haired rebel with a motorcyle. The preppy teenager. The smart-ass younger brother. The jock. The sex-crazed slime ball. Everything about this movie screams the ’80s: right down to the shoulder pads, the creepy priest and the pay phones. — SOURCE: A Fan’s Guide to Scary Movies: The Blob (1988)

If you’re interested in reading my article, be sure to check out A Fan’s Guide to Scary Movies: The Blob (1988). Writing this series for Crackle.com has been a lot of fun. Owned by Sony, the company has been really easy to work with and they’re very supportive, so I’m glad to return the favor by sharing these with you. In the interest of full disclosure, I get free reign to talk about what I like and what I don’t in these films; so what you read is my honest opinion.

Also, I’m not sure if you caught this not, but this week Crackle.com re-launched their website to be more contemporary. The site is bigger, bolder and a lot sleeker so it’s a lot easier to watch movies and television shows. Don’t believe me? Watch The Blob remake for free and don’t be afraid to tell them what you think of their new look.
